The versatile 26-year-old, the club's current player of the year, skippered the Reds on several occasions during the 2012/13 campaign in the absence of Danny Collins.

He was thrilled to accept manager Billy Davies' offer, telling Forest's official website: "It's a massive honour to be captain of such a huge club.

"I'm really looking forward to it but nothing is going to change with me. I just want to set examples in the way I play football, which is something I have always tried to do."

Midfielder Andy Reid has been named vice-captain, a move Cohen has welcomed.

He added: "The manager knows how much experience Reidy has. He has been at some massive clubs and is used to big pressure situations, which will come into play in the coming months.

"He and the other experienced players in the team will be crucial to us this season."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
